I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror, expecting to see my usual brown locks when I noticed a decent chunk of my hair was a deep blue... I've been using Mountain Rose Herbs henna/indigo coloring for the last several months to get my hair a darker brown and I've loved it. It gives me a good color and looks natural. The last time I put it on was the end of Feb. and was thinking of doing it again this weekend since a few parts are lightening up with the sunlight. Now I'm a little scared to! Has anyone ever heard of hair turning blue this long after using indigo? I don't mind the blue, it's mostly natural looking (like it's not a wild blue, it looks like it could be natural if blue were an actual hair color lol), but it's just over one section. Do you think that if I leave my hair alone it'll all turn blue, or if I color it with the henna/indigo it'll get rid of the blue or maybe even turn it all blue?? Like I said, I don't particularly mind the blue, and I joked with my boss once if it was ok if I accidentally colored my hair blue...I just didn't think it'd really happen! The only thing I can think of that I've done different is I switched back to a different shampoo bar - all natural, beer based, my hair loves it and I've never had this happen before when I've used it. More than anything I just want my hair to be mostly uniform. Right now there's bits of light brown/blondish, medium brown, dark brown, and blue...
Edit: errr well I did draw up an epsom salt bath for my mom last night and I might've put my hand on my hair while it was still wet...I'm finding some things online that say epsom salt will make color come out quicker. Maybe this is what happened?

This might be a really strange question but... are your pillow cases blue? My grandmother had blue pillowcases and a couple of weeks ago she woke up with blue strands of hair as well... so maybe first check if it isn't something else like that?
I do actually, but this isn't where I would (comfortably) have my head while I was sleeping. They're a very different shade from this blue too. I've had them for a few years without any problems. And it's not a few strands...it's a giant chunk...like 3 inches wide, 6 inches down.
I cannot imagine how this happened. Do you know a colorist who might help? Most salon colorists are not up on henna, though, so maybe call the manufacturer? Or even Henna for Hair? They're very helpful.
Dogs and nature abhor a vacuum.
if it is not because of the henna but because of something else, it will disappear in a couple of washes... it took my grandmother 2 wash n gos before it was gone (but then again, she only has her hair washed once every two weeks)
